SF’s latest “Trojan Horse of Equality” spotted in Mid Ulster…

Here’s Sinn Fein Councillor Sean McGuigan explaining his party’s decision in the new Mid Ulster supercouncil to ban the sale of the poppy on council premises:

“We wanted to create an environment of equality and neutrality in council-owned facilities.  This interim arrangement will cover the sale and display of all symbols, including poppies and Easter Lilies, at all council buildings. This is part of Sinn Féin’s ongoing commitment to equality.”

Elsewhere, of course, Sinn Fein is firmly committed to its other policy of some (‘us’) being more equal than others (‘themuns’)

The decision is pending an equality impact assessment which is due in April… Although judging by the way the party has treated such judgements in the past, any inconveniences may be completely ignored…
